France-based Timoci Matanavou is the latest player to join the Flying Fijians in England as they gear up for their game against Gloucester on Wednesday.
Team manager, Aseri Rokoura says Matanavou’s speed and experience at top club level rugby will serve Fiji well.
He says Fiji has to win their remaining matches on the Europe tour.
“We will be putting on our local players who haven’t played and also matched Timoci Matanavou who has also arrived to join the team. He will be in the Flying Fijians backline to face Gloucester.”
Matanavou was not part of the 30-member team for the Northern Tour, indicating he may be replacing No.8, Akapusi Qera.
Rokoura says no players are injured.
